Billie Eilish has been interested in music since she was 8. Although the teen sensation didn’t plan to become professional, she got great training as a musician – mostly due to her father, who is a big fan of music. Patrick listened to recordings of various genres – starting from Beatles and ending with Avril Lavigne. He taught his son Finneas and daughter Billie to love music and in addition let them become homeschooled, so they had enough time to make their music experiments.

Patrick O’Connell knows how important it is for an artist to have enough time for creative work. That’s because he is busy in the entertainment industry, too. He is an actor, known by roles in the movies “Iron Man”, “The West Wing” and others.

Patrick fell in love with acting in his young years, which he spent in Norwalk, Connecticut. He moved to Los Angeles, when decided to pursue acting as a career. There he resides till now with his wife Maggie and their two children.

Billie’s father taught her to understand music, while her mother inspired her to create it. Maggie is a unique personality, who develops her own creativity – and helps her daughter and son create theirs.

She rose to fame as a singer, songwriter and voice actress. Maggie spoke for the heroine of a role-playing video game “Mass Effect 2”, named Samara. Not long ago the woman co-wrote the movie “Life Inside Out”, where she starred in the company of her husband and son.

Really, Maggie can be proud of what she’s doing, but she is even more proud of the family she created. In her interview to “Your Teen” magazine the woman told, that they don’t lead a typical “Hollywood” lifestyle. Of course, each member of their family is a busy person, who visits auditions, takes part in new projects, but if they have some free evening, surely they gather around a dinner table and enjoy the meal in the circle of closest people.

By the way, Billie Eilish still lives with her parents in their cozy, but not big house in LA. The teen star resides with her parents in two-bedroom home.

Maggie and her husband made up a difficult decision to let her kids study at home. She explained, that such a kind of getting education helped her kids to hear themselves and to understand, what their calling was.

Date of birth: July 30, 1997

Finneas is that very person, who played the key part in his sister’s career. He authored a song “Ocean Eyes” and convinced Billie to sing it. Both had no idea, that their track would become so viral. Actually, that was the first stone, from which Billie Eilish started to build her career.

In addition to the role of Billie’s producer, Finneas is also a musician, songwriter and an actor. Viewers may remember him as Spencer from the film “Bad Teacher”, where he played with Cameron Diaz; as Alistair from the series “Glee” and in some other projects.

Finneas O’Connell was born and raised in Los Angeles. He was homeschooled, and according to his interview to “Your Teen”, he doesn’t plan to go to college in the nearest future. “It’s better to save the massive amount of money and spent it for the start of your career”, he tells.

She is an incredibly talented teenager, who looks quite unusual, wearing her baggy suits and layered coats. “I know, that people are terrified, looking at me, but that’s what I want”, she tells.

Probably, she knows, what’s she doing, because she has already achieved massive success in music industry without any idea to become a popular musician.

Billie Eilish was born in the family of two actors. She was homeschooled, and didn’t spend too much time, learning math or English. But she got great training as a piano player – Billie visited music lessons since her early years. In addition, she sang in Los Angeles choir, wrote songs and attended dancing lessons.

Her dancing coach asked the girl to find a new composition to compose a dance to it. The girl took the homemade record of “Ocean Eyes”, which she previously made under the guidance of her older brother. To share the track with her teacher, she uploaded it to “SoundCloud”.  Unexpectedly, it later became public, and soon got millions of views.

As for now, Billie develops her initial success in music. She had already released her debut EP “Don’t Smile at Me” and started her first tour, tickets for which were sold within a couple of hours.
